Eating in class (the right way)
Isn’t it annoying when you’re trying to listen your prof’s lecture, but instead all you can hear are the distinct crackling noises of your neighbour’s candy wrapper? Or even worse— when you’re distracted and embarrassed by the loud growls your own stomach is making?*
Yep! Been there, done that.
So here are some of my tips on how to prevent awkward hunger-situations!
- Eat breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. Skipping meals isn’t good for you, so eat frequently! Your body will thank you later.
- Bring the right types of food. That means snack food, not your lunch! Leave that veggie pizza for break. Granola bars are good, as are small fruits like grapes.
- Don’t bring anything sticky or stinky to class. No one wants to smell you and what you’re eating, so don’t bring in those onion pork buns, no matter how yummy they are! And you also probably don’t want fingerprints all over your shiny new laptop, so think about not eating juicy (but sticky!) fruits while you’re taking notes.
- Don’t bring open drink containers into the lecture hall. Those pop cans and juice boxes are just spills waiting to happen. Starbucks and Timmy’s is okay, though, as are water bottles and mugs with lids. Mmm, steaming hot tea is good in the morning.
- Unwrap wrappers before class starts, so you don’t disrupt other people’s focus’. Minimize as much trash as you possibly can, because garbage piles just aren’t that attractive.
- Stomach growling and there’s no food? In a pinch, clap your arm over the offending organ. It will muffle the sounds. Making a constipated face at the same time might help, but I can’t guarantee it.
*Once, my stomach growled so loud that my friend sitting next to me heard. She started laughing, and it was embarrassing.
But it’s okay because it happened again today in reverse so hah.

The morning after
all most of the Kin froshees agreed to wear their frosh shirts today. And so a good chunk of my Kin 190 lecture came to class sporting a black and green shirt, making them instantly recognizable to all. Obviously, all of us that went to frosh felt the solidarity that comes from a shared experience. Frosh makes best buddies, right?
I couldn’t remember anyone’s name! I recognized faces, but there were only a handful of people I could put names to. Or sometimes it was the other way around, and I heard names but I couldn’t connect them to a face. So today, I settled for awkward little waves and re-introductions. At least I didn’t try to (wrongly) guess someone’s name.
